afghan government to seek peace with taliban fighters who infiltrate from neighboring pakistan. today for the first time mr. obama said those talks are specific enough that they deserve a formal home. >> president karzai updated me on the afghan government's road map to peace and today we agreed that this process should be advanced by the opening of a taliban office to facilitate talks. >> reporter: prospects for peace remain dim and taliban aggression when fighting resumes this spring is not expected to let up. but the u.s. combat role will never be the same. >> our troops will continue to fight alongside afghans when needed, but let me say it as plainly as i can: starting this spring our troops will have a different mission. training, advising, assisting afghan forces. it will be an historic moment and another step toward full afghan sovereignty, something i know president karzai cares deeply about, as do the afghan people. >> reporter: mr. obama and the afghan president agreed to accelerate by a couple of months the transition of u.s. forces from combat to training. karzai endorsed

across the border in pakistan. so i think you probably are going to see an unraveling gradually. i think there's only one afghan brigade that is capable of acting independently. these forces need air support intelligence, all of the kind of logistics and other support that is necessary to be effective. fighting forces, they're not going to have that, and so i am much less an optimist about this eventual outcome. but when you look at the middle east, look at what happened at iraq, look at what happened in syria, the united states no longer leading from behind waiting from behind, and then you look at the decisions concerning afghanistan, you can understand why people throughout the region believe the united states is withdrawing and that is not good for the region. >> schieffer: let me ask you this senator. we went to afghanistan in the beginning because we wanted them to deny al-qaeda a safe haven the terrorists who caused 9/11 and i think to some extent we probably have done that. but as long as they have a safe haven in pakistan, does it really matter, and i'm not saying to the a

afghanistan. most of them is in pakistan. >> well the white house has been concerned about some of those safe havens and al qaeda working with the taliban which is still supporting al qaeda. >> well, i mean if you look way back to when this war started, that's where it all began, right? you had a taliban government in kabul and they let al qaeda in. that's basically the concern, what happens if the taliban comes back. >> dexter, if we've effectively beaten al qaeda in afghanistan, why do we have to be there? >> well that's a good question. i think, again, if you look back to 2001 when we went to war after 9/11 we were going after al qaeda and we went after the government that was giving them sanctuary, which was the taliban. we took that government and we tried for the last 12 years to put something in its place. we tried to build a government and build a state that would stand on its own. it's a very hard country. we haven't really done a very good job of doing that. and so the question that everybody should be asking themselves is, you know can this thing, which we've built, stand on its ow
